UC Davis Law Professor Richard Frank writes about the Supreme Court cases of Chevron U.S.A., Inc. v. County of Monterey, to be argued tomorrow, and Make UC a Good Neighbor v. Regents of University of California, in which the court granted review last week.

Frank says that, although the court had been “quite active in interpreting and shaping California environmental law,” the last few years saw “only a couple of relatively minor environmental law decisions,” but now the court “is back in the environmental law business.”
